33 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Hyperprolactinemia, Prolactin Increased

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    PURPOSE: To review the effect of non-gynecologic laparoscopic procedures performed during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy on pregnancy outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review of the patient log for the antenatal obstetrical unit was used to identify the patients in this series from January 1,[…][]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Abstract Anemia is a major problem in patients with chronic kidney insufficiency. The development of recombinant human erythropoietin has enabled physicians to correct this anemia. Although anemia has not been considered to be a common or important contributor to congestive heart failure, anemia of any cause can[…][]

  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (48 mm/h).[] We report a 35 year old woman with a 10 year history of multisystemic LCH who developed DI, mild hyperprolactinemia, gonadotrophin and partial growth hormone deficiency following[] Follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and prolactin levels continued to be low. No serum growth hormone level assessment was performed.[]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    We describe a woman with metastatic small cell carcinoma of the lung who presented with pituitary apoplexy and hyperprolactinemia.[]

  • Pituitary Adenoma

    The systemic symptoms (eg, fever, arthralgia, elevated sedimentation rate, lupuslike rashes) that accompany some myxomas may be due to the production of the proinflammatory[] Several medications are known to cause hyperprolactinemia (see chapter on Anterior Pituitary, Hyperprolactinemia Associated with Drugs).[] Prolactinomas increase blood levels of prolactin.[]

  • Granulomatous Giant-Cell Hypophysitis

    Laboratory evaluation revealed a markedly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] This entity should be considered when evaluating patients with a pituitary mass and evidence of hypopituitarism and hyperprolactinemia.[] Hormonal measurements showed normal levels but a slight increase of prolactin.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    (especially the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR ).[] Other manifestations Diabetes insipidus is the most frequently reported endocrine disorder, followed by hyperprolactinemia.[] In her case, the increased calcitriol is derived from sarcoid granulomas and renal sources enhanced by the effect of estradiol and prolactin on the conversion of 25(OH)D to[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Initial labs showed pancytopenia, bandemia, proteinuria, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and elevated d-dimer.[] Potential causes of the female predilection for SLE included the effects of estrogen and its hydroxylation, decreased androgen levels, hyperprolactinemia, and differences[] Studies do not agree on whether taking hormones increases the risk for lupus or for lupus symptom flares.[]

  • Decreased Libido

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate and abnormality of plasma viscosity R70.0 Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate R70.1 Abnormal plasma viscosity R71 Abnormality of red blood[] “Libido problems may be related to hypogonadism, hyperprolactinemia, depression, fear of sexual failure, certain medications, or systemic illness.” 4 Many medications can[] “Sexual desire can decrease during pregnancy, postpartum, and while breastfeeding due to hormonal changes, like increased prolactin,” says Dr. Hutcherson.[]

  • Granulomatous Mastitis

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) were not elevated.[] Four cases showing a co-occurrence of GM and hyperprolactinemia were consequently identified.[] We hope this will increase awareness of this rare clinically entity and avoid potentially unnecessary surgery.[]
